The latest real-life example of the old adage “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” occurred in Wisconsin when a man found cheating had his penis Krazy Glued to his stomach in a criminal case of sexual revenge.
Last week, two Wisconsin sisters pleaded no contest to reduced charges in plea agreement that is expected to allow them to avoid jail time.
The sisters, Therese Ziemann, 48, of Menasha, and Michelle Belliveau, 43, of Neenah, were accused along with two other women of gluing the penis of Donessa T. Davis, 37, to his stomach in an incident that occurred in Calumet County in July.
Davis, 37, alleged Ziemann tied him to a bed at a Stockbridge motel room July 30 when he went there for a sexual rendezvous. He says he was then set upon by Ziemann and Belliveau, as well as his wife Tracy Hood-Davis, 30, of Fond du Lac, and yet another girlfriend, Wendy Sewell, 44, of Kaukauna.
Prosecutors said the women got together without Davis' knowledge to plot an appropriate punishment for him after learning he had been cheating on his wife, Ziemann and Sewell. Each of the three women had believed they were his only paramour. Belliveau just went along to show support for her sister, prosecutors said.
The acknowledged cheating husband was lured to the motel, located in a small town about 30 miles from Green Bay, by his girlfriend – Ziemann, his mistress for the past three months. Thinking he was going to enact a bondage fantasy with the woman, he allowed her to tie him to the bed.
After Davis was trussed up with the promise of a “sensual massage,” Ziemann then called for her sister, Belliveau; Davis’ second lover, Sewell, and his estranged wife Hood-Davis.
The four allegedly refused to release him, threatened him with mace, punched him in the face, and then applied the coup de grace, the ultimate insult: Using Krazy Glue to affix his manhood to his stomach.
Prosecutors said it was Ziemann who performed the actual gluing.
Ziemann pleaded no contest in Chilton to disorderly conduct and misdemeanor battery, while Belliveau pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct. They are scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 2, 2010.
District attorney Ken Kratz agreed not to seek jail time for either one.
An attorney for Ziemann said she is being treated for "an emotional disorder."
Sewell pleaded not guilty last month to a false imprisonment charge. Her case remains pending.
A false-imprisonment charge against Tracy Hood-Davis was dropped earlier. However, Kratz said that new criminal charges will be filed against her. Kratz did not say what those charges would be, only that they will be filed “soon.” But court documents show that she may have coached her husband to testify in her favor. Kratz would also not say whether Donessa T. Davis will also face potential perjury charges.
Let me be clear: There is never a time when infidelity justifies violence against the cheater, provided no minors are involved and there is no forced victimization or rape.
However, infidelity causes very real pain to the victims, and serial cheaters need psychological help. Just look at the Tiger Woods case if you doubt the impact of infidelity on everyone involved. Faithfulness is the least a partner should expect after giving intimacy and trust to a paramour. The abuse of that trust is devastating, whether it happens within a marriage or to unmarried partners, regardless of sexual orientation. If you do not want to be faithful, don’t commit. If you cannot be faithful, get help. Period.
